Windows 7: cannot change the action of closing display in my NB

cannot change the action of closing display in my NB


I brough a Samsung notebook recently and found that it will go to sleep mode automatically when I close the display. I tried to change the action of closing display in the power settings, however, I found that the options are dimmed and I cannot change it. Could anyone teach me how can I change it?

p.s. My notebook is Samsung RF710, windows7 home premium 64 bits

Thanks so much

Welcome to Seven Forums :)
Click on the bottom left windows icon.
Where it says search for programs and files, type in FAST START

Click on the only search it finds for you and disable it. You will be able to change your close lid option from your power options after you disable fast start.

How to change the default double click action?
I knew how to change this in XP, but I just can't work it out in 7.
